Pete Rafle

2021 was my first foray into FAWM-dom -- I loved the experience, wrote some songs I am really proud of, and can’t wait to do it again! (you can hear last year's output here: https://soundcloud.com/paparomeo/sets/fawm-songs-february-2021?si=afbf69a8afcc4f04b3517c811dc3851c&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing) I live outside Washington, DC, and would love to collaborate with others in the area and beyond. Been a bassist and guitarist since I was a teenager, but only really got serious about songwriting a few years ago after attending Steve Earle's songwriting camp (and subsequently Richard Thompson's Frets & Refrains). I'm a regular on the Social Distance Cafe's weekly online open mics (Join us! socialdistancecafe.com), and I'm looking forward to sharing my songs with live audiences again (soon, I hope!).

Here's my more pretentious "official" bio:
Springfield, Virginia, based singer-songwriter-bassist Pete Rafle is an alumnus of Steve Earle’s Camp Copperhead and Richard Thompson's Frets & Refrains, where he has had the privilege of honing his craft under the tutelage of Dar Williams, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, and Sloane Wainwright.
